Cut Fat or Build Muscle First

Chris 3 years ago in Diet and Nutrition updated by andy 3 years ago 4

Hi Marc,


I am relatively new to lifting.  Only about a 1 to 1.5 years into lifting consistently.  Currently I am in the low 20's when it comes to body fat percentage across a couple different body fat percentage tests.  Long term I am looking to compete someday but not sure if I should look to cut down to 10-12% body fat first like you have previously recommended or work on building some muscle foundation first.  Any recommendations for someone new?

Answer

No point gaining now--you will have too much fat!


I would cut down to 6-8% using www.dropfactorbook.com


Once there, LEAN GAIN 1-2lbs a month at www.massdiet.com


Best of luck!

Thanks for the input Marc.  Was stuck with the idea of trying to gain some lean muscle to help raise my BMR but will work on cutting down first.
